Eclectic Essences at Kustom9

Gacha Kustom9 Hello Fab Free’rs I hope you’re doing well. It’s been a minute since I did some gacha-ing and there are several cute gachas waiting to be played at the current round of Kustom9. You know I can’t resist skin gachas, and especially not when the Essences gacha is set at 75 lindens per play. Also, ieQED has some sweet summer bangles at just 29 lindens per play.  These gachas are really just two of many but they caught my attention first! haha

This beautiful skin is one of the 12 Arwen gacha prizes from Essences at Kustom9. These gachas include Lelutka head applier only. Matching body appliers can be found for sale at the Essences main store. Of the 12 total versions in various skin tones, 10 commons and 2 rares. Pru is wearing the Arwen #9 which is one of the common prizes in the dark01 tone. I personally rarely wear the darker tones, but when I tried this one on, it was just too pretty! It really is a beautiful skin. It also looks lighter or darker depending on your windlight settings, which really just makes me like it even more. At just 75 lindens per play, if you’re a Lelutka head wearer, you need this skin or one of the other equally beautiful versions in your inventory!

I was so excited when I saw that ieQED had a gacha at this round of Kustom9. These bangles are so cute, and are the type of jewelry you could wear with anything. The ieQED gacha is just 29 lindens per play. The rare gets you a color change hud, I wasn’t so lucky, but I’m thrilled with the three bangles I did get. How cute is that pineapple?! Truly I feel like these little “eclectic” bracelets capture the fun of summer perfectly. There are 10 total bangles, and the rare hud will give you the option of picking between 5 metal tones and 6 gem colors.

So you can get a good look a the other Essences and ieQED gacha prizes at Kustom9, I’ve included a copy of the gacha keys below. Good Luck!

Morning Java

Morning Java

Paisley Daisy is one of my favorite places to pick up the monthly VIP group gift. And June’s gift is just gorgeous. I stopped by this morning and nabbed this two piece pants suit in red (it comes in all the standard mesh sizes) with its flowing flexi side sash and thought that with a good set of heels and some bangle bracelets, I would be ready to take on the world with a great cup of Java… which is how I ended up at the latest art installation Sim — Entropy III — which is… you guessed it… the inside of a giant coffee cup! Well worth visiting some Second Life morning, if I don’t say so myself!

My pretty bangle bracelets by Paddling Melody are a fabulous FREE find on the marketplace, and what I really love best about these is the versatility. When you open the box you’ll find that you can wear each single bracelet separately, or the whole kit and caboodle as one set. The bracelets are just set to wear on the right arm… so if you want to wear them on both arms, as I have in the photo above, you’ll want to make a copy of the set and “attach to” your avatar’s left forearm and edit into place, and voila!

My shoes really are worth mentioning… even if they are over our 75L price tag limit. I had stopped by the Arcade Gacha event to take a look around for new hair and fell in love with these amazing heels by Azoury. They are 100L per spin, but each spin gets you a set of heels that will fit Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, or TMP feet. Azoury are unique and high quality shoes, so if you can spare the Linden to give this machine a spin, you might want to give it a go.

Morning Java 1

My last stop was at the Clawtooth Gacha at the Arcade Gacha, where I picked up my new pretty hairstyle. There are two styles in the machine… the one I am showing you in the picture above called Zosia which is a shorter style. There was also a longer style called Jolene in the gacha machine. Both are really beautiful on, and at only 75L per spin, these are a really good deal.

A TuttiFrutti Selfie!

Happy Easter!

Have I mentioned, in the last two minutes, how much I LOVE Easter?  I remember when I was a little kid and my grandmother would put together these amazing Easter baskets…filled with all kinds of goodies…and I got to wear something pretty!  Today I am showing you an adorable little FREE *Happy Easter!* dress from *TuttiFrutti*.  I love that this dress isn’t your usual Easter attire, with bunnies and such, the overlapping circle design and muted colors give it a retro feel and it’s FREE!
A TuttiFrutti Selfie!
Of course, I had to go hunting to find all kinds of fun accessories and boy did I score!  The fabulous Mesh Mobile Phone (with HUD) is only 1L from ::No Cabide::; on the Marketplace.  The phone does not come with a hold animation or pose…however, the HUD gives you six great texture options for the case…now that’s a pretty sweet deal for only 1L!  My “teeth” are actually an applier [:T:] Parted Lips Tattoo Layers [FREE] from [:Tuli:] on the marketplace.  There are 7 layers which vary how much of your “teeth” are showing…and absolutely FREE!

The super fun jewelry is from CHOP ZUEY COUTURE JEWELLERY… the multi colored bangles are a FREE gift for Fabulously Free (no group required)…and you add each bangle separately; so you can easily mix and match to your heart’s desire! The necklaces are also attached individually and come with color coordinating earrings.  The necklace and earring sets are also FREE  with the 250L group join.  Saving up the linden to join this group has paid off 100 fold…Belle Roussel is incredibly generous to her group members…thank you Belle!❤
A TuttiFrutti Selfie!

My hair is one of the current lucky board prizes (no group required), Asami, from **D!va** Hair.  This hair has two bang options, bun on or off option, AND a ponytail you can add! My nail appliers, Summer Skies, from Ch’Know are only 20L (fingernails and toenails sold separately) on their Marketplace store. The Happy Easter Bag Dollarbie is only 1L from MDL on the Marketplace.
A TuttiFrutti Selfie!

These gorgeous shoes, Seattle, are available at the Comic Fashion Fair, from Essenz. The SLURL is a forced landing point so you will need to search for the store once you land. The shoes are compatible for Slink Mid Feet and, once you find the brightly colored gift package, they will cost one whole linden (1L)!  Now THAT’S as sweet as jellybeans!

Happy Easter and stay Fabulously Free!❤❤

Art~Paris METRO & Elysium

Good Morning!

I hope you all took advantage of the fabulous offerings, around the grid, for St. Patrick’s Day.  I finished off the day with a visit to the Paris Metro Art Gallery …where Love suggested I would find a wonderful exhibit AND a free outfit from Paris Metro Couture.

The exhibit, featuring the work of Indea Vaher, highlights the life of African American women from a fictional barrier island; off the coast of the USA.  Vaher is an artist in First Life and her work, focusing on African American southern culture, has been internationally recognized.  The Paris METRO Vaher Dress brilliantly reflects the vibrant colors of Indea’s art pieces, and it is FREE to anyone; you will find it in a vendor right at the landing point.  It comes with a matching hat (not worn).
Art~Paris METRO & Elysium
I styled the outfit with a gorgeous Jah versace Headwrap from L&H Couture and a Mesh Necklace 02, from .:ECCO:. FREE (no group join required).

HUDSON´s Clothing Co.

Here we are with another great tip from SuzetteAnne Brandenburg: Hudson´s Clothing & Co., Paektu 48, 150,93.

Thank you, SuzetteAnne! And thank you, Candace Hudson, designer and owner of Hudson`s Clothing Co., to give me a reminder that finally I have to write this post! Hudson`s is on my “to do list” since SuzetteAnne mentioned it. What I´m waiting for? Candace was so kind to send me her freebies🙂

I was really thrilled by the wonderful Baby Blues Dress (comes with matching earrings!), especially by the skirt, it´s amazing. Candace Hudson told me, mainly she makes furniture and home decorations in stained glass … she´s a “newcomer” in terms of clothing …. well, if this is just one of the first attempts, Candace … congrats, well done🙂 I want you to make more, more, more …🙂 So if you like Baby Blues Dress, too – get it now, it will be there for about 14 day. It´s inside Hudson`s Clothing store along with two other freebies. And both are well done and pretty again. My favorite is the romantic Rose Choker, but I also like the goth touched set of Celtic Cross necklace+earrings.

When you join Hudson`s Clothing group, you will get more freebies. There is a notice dated 6/19, subject “Masquerade Masks Group …”. Inside of the box are wonderful masks! Oh, and there´s a party going on today (21th), you will find the landmark inside the box, too!

Join the party, so can you take a look on the whole area. And grab your other freebies, too. Yes, there are more: brass sun and a wonderful stainglassed fire bowl … and somewhere should be a free clock😉 You can also join Stained Glass Lover Group. Candace Hudson and her partner XL Hudson (there were numbers after XL but I can´t remember!) are giving out group gifts often, especially on holidays.

You have to take a closer look at the buildings by Mr. Hudson🙂 And the furniture, the stain glassed windows and doors, vases, curtains and so on. Candace Hudson does stainglass art in RL, too. And if you happen to need something you don´t see around … Candace Hudson also makes custom works.

What a long post …. but there are so many amazings things to see at HUDSON`s – so go for a walk there, grab your freebies and take a rest( or party) at Cheerz Pub🙂

UPDATED: I AM FROM AUSTRIA thanks GaZoV DeSiGnS & S.Y.D.

Finally, I have to do it *sighs* Blame it all on Greta Gazov!😉

Well, right now this “football-soccer-championship-thingy” is going on here in my hometown Vienna. Honestly, I´m not interested in any sports at all and I´m not familiar with European Football (it´s boring ….. and our guys are …. uhm *coughs*). If you want to know more details about it, please ask Greta Gazov, or my hubby *grin*

Greta was so kind to drop me her “football stuff”, thanks a lot! I´m doing this post only for the reason I love love love Greta`s umbrellas (parasols), and because I´m from Austria, of course *smiles*

Tp over to Greta`s store GaZoV DeSiGnS Isla del Mar 128, 162, 28 and you will find 5 boxes: GOAL contains purse and parasol in white, black and green and matching bangles. GoGER (Germany), GoNETH (Netherlands), GoAUS (Austria) and GoSW (SWISS) have parasols, hair flowers and bangles inside, matching the regional colors of the countries. Hmmm, looks good although you are not a fan of any sports🙂

Also there´s a cute teddy as group gift🙂 Go to “all” tab in search, use the phrase “gazov”, it´s the 3th choice, join the group (free), go to notices, click the one dated 5/30/2008, subject “group gift”. Save attachment, you are now proud owner of a box with cute teddies in many colors from GaZoV DeSiGnS.

The top I´m wearing is the free StarTop-light red by Sams Secrets, Bara 211, 130, 22. Sams Secrets always offers pretty items! Pants are part of four YIP´s (always free!) Black&White Suit outfit. I´ve got it from GNUBIE Store, Powder Mill 121, 142, 34. Hair is by BP* BettyPageVoyager bigbombHair, a Lucky Chair prize. Skin is WheatSkin MakeUp00 (1L) by SYD/Laynie Wear.

Done! But let me insert Greta Gazov´s notecard *grin grin grin*. Oh, and take a look at her blog🙂

“The rest of the world might not care very much but here in Europe we’re getting prepared for the Euro 2008, the European football championship and of course we are helping you to get into the right mood. We have made a set of three purses (black, green and white) and matching parasols that poof little footballs as well as two sets of bangles in black and white. Also available in our store but only until the German team drops out of the competition. No German win – no freebie, it’s that easy🙂 Goaaaaaaal”

“Even more cutsie football stuff has arrived in our store now. We have prepared some special fan sets for Germany, our wonderful host countries Austria & Switzerland as well as for our Dutch neighbors – well, they should know why we suddenly love them so much *grins broadly*. All sets are available for zero Lindens and wil be up for grabs until the end of the championship. We wish our neighbors good luck in the ongoing competition.”

Sorry for the long post but I also have to show you what SySy Chapman, designer and owner of S.Y.D, dropped me right now. More funny fan stuff🙂 No freebie but worth every linden. Spend 10 L and You get a flag, a belt (male + female), a hat (the hat is aaaawsome, can´t stop laughing) and a shirt FOR FREE. My pets are totally floored *grin* Now I can´t hide it no longer! I´ve flagged my parcel, I´m from Austria🙂 Read details on SySy`s blog and then tp over to S.Y.D and get your football gear pack (there are 10). Thanks, SySy!

AngelicoB wears a Dark Mouse, a Baby Monkey and a Magpie

AngelicoB BlackBlueLaceFlexiAnother animal connection today for you *smile* Yesterday my 2nd life was running bad and so did Cher´s. She was the one who found Angelico B`s pretty Black Blue Lace Flexi dress and I had to grab it because Cher was not rich enought to buy it (said her 2nd life). That´s teamwork, I think. BlackBlueLaceFlexi is a dollarbie which comes with top, pants and skirt with wonderful laces and a blingy thing (I just want to mention it). You will find the box in the window (the bags located left and right of it are gift boxes to put your own stuff into it!).

BABY MONKEY has reached 300 members (congrats!) and to celebrate this the new group gift is amazing generous! There are 10! pair of shoes (even boots) in the box. Don´t miss it! Do a search in groups for the group called Baby Monkey Junkie. I used the phrase “baby monkey” and it was the 1st choice. Join the group, its free to join. Wear your group tag and tp over to BABY MONKEY´s store. Then click the monkey sign with floating text “…group gift”. You are now proud owner of a 300members gift box with 10 pair of shoes from BABY MONKEY! Wear your nude pumps and strappy gold sandals and all other shoes with grace and be grateful.

BabyMonkey nude pumpsBM Strappy Sandals gold 300members gift

Matching pieces for Angelico`s BlackBlueLaceFlexi dress are the cute and welldone bracelets by Magpie. It´s a new, small shop at Juicy`s beach but check it out, there are affordable and nice items. The freebie box with gold/teal bangles and gold/teal bangles thin is not inside the shop! It`s across from it in the Tiki hut. Open your eyes, you can´t miss it.

Not only Magpie´s bracelets go well with the dress also Dark Mouse`s Charm Bracelet and Modern Diamond Necklace! You have to go upstairs to find the freebies pictured on the wall (and there is a flower belt set too). Take a look at the lovely, dainty necklace. And how cute is the bracelet with this mousie mouse – I love “anim-al-ated” stuff so much!
